The Smart FourJoy is a concept car that will make its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, which is only 4 days away. The concept is being developed by the union of two companies, Renault-Nissan and Daimler. The official sketch was released just a couple of hours ago, followed by the unofficially reveal of the details and actual pictures of the car. Judging by the pictures, one can say that the FourJoy is nowhere near to being a production-spec yet. It is clearly far away and will definitely take a lot of time to be a mass produced automobile.
The FourJoy is also a foretaste of the next generation ForTwo and ForFour models that is confirmed to go on sale in the near future, somewhere around the mid 2000s. As far as the looks are concerned, the FourJoy is definitely a car from outer space, it looks like a vehicle that an advanced species of aliens would drive around in. The front portion is decorated with wrap around headlights, firmly integrated bumper and hexagonal air vents. Coming to the back portion, the car has chrome detailing all over and has beefed-up wheel arches, big wheel arches are becoming a trend on concept cars nowadays.
The most surprising but totally ‘concept car’ modification is the fact that, it doesn’t have a roof or doors. The inside has more of an egg-pod effect, the front seats are ‘egg-podded’ and the rear seats are designed like a circular couch, with a ‘Pacman’ inspired dashboard and a tablet screen, with a clear-cut instrument cluster. But the ForTwo’s refreshed model will go on sale in the early days of 2015 in Europe and will come to the United States of America after several months of the European launch. That car is expected to be 25-50 mm longer and 76-101 mm wider than the current in-production model.
